Anatomy Of A Play
Thanks to long-departed GM Phil Emery and his unwise huge contract extension, the Green Bay Packers will still see quarterback Jay Cutler when they face the Chicago Bears for at least the near future. In the series unfolding below, former Bear Julius Peppers sacks Cutler into a fumble, and discards him before recovering the loose ball during the blow-out win over the Bears. It always feels good to sweep the Bears and this time the whitewash was completed with a 55-14 romp at Lambeau on November 9th.
Aaron Rodgers tied an NFL record with six first-half touchdown passes for a 42-0 lead, and the final score matched the most the Bears allowed in history. The Bears became the first team to allow 50 points in two straight games since the 1923 Rochester Jeffersons.
